Helix One (Benchtop Cylindrical Printer) - Default Title
The Helix® ONE benchtop cylindrical printer joins the Helix® line of direct-to-object printers. This machine utilizes patented Helix® technology in a more compact benchtop design. The Helix® ONE is a dedicated cylinder printing machine designed to decorate straight walled and tapered cylinders including plastic bottles, stainless tumblers, candle holders and more. This cylindrical printer targets a wide variety of customers; from those who are just starting out to those who require a machine per sku.
Although a benchtop machine in nature, the components of the Helix® ONE are far superior to competitive products in the market. This machine features a motor-driven operation with a fully automatic programmable tooling fixture & height adjust and high-precision, robust linear drive. The Helix® ONE also boasts 8W segmented software-controlled UV curing unit for optimal curing. The machine’s build includes an automatic wiping, white and black sub-tank stirring system, and the ability to add in jettable primer. The Helix® ONE’s print heads utilize state-of-the-art MEMs head technology with integrated temperature control system and high-definition drop size (3-picoliter).
Paired with the LV Series UV printer ink, the Helix® ONE is able to reproduce vibrant and intricate images onto a variety of substrates and vessel types in full CMYK and Varnish.
PRINT W+CMYK+V IN TANDEM
The Helix® ONE benchtop cylindrical printer has the unique ability to print white, CMYK and varnish in tandem due to the segmented UV lamp.
FULLY AUTOMATIC PROGRAMMABLE TOOLING FIXTURE AND HEIGHT ADJUST
The Helix® ONE’s fully automatic programmable tooling fixture with height adjust precisely holds and positions vessels during UV printing. This fixture can be programmed to automatically adjust its position and orientation based on the specific requirements of the vessel being printed.
The height adjust function of the tooling fixture allows for the precise positioning of the product, which is critical for achieving accurate and consistent results. This feature can be particularly useful in situations where multiple workpieces need to be printed using a single fixture, as it allows for quick and efficient changes between workpieces.
AUTOMATIC WIPING STATION
A wiping station for inkjet printers is an essential component that helps to maintain quality and longevity. By doing so, it ensures that the Helix® ONE Benchtop Cylindrical Printer is always ready to produce high-quality prints. The wiping station is typically located on the printer’s carriage assembly and contains a rubber wiper blade that cleans the printhead as it moves back and forth across the substrate.
8W SEGMENTED SOFTWARE-CONTROLLED UV CURING UNIT
The Helix® ONE Benchtop Cylindrical Printer features a unique segmented design that allows for independent control of each segment, enabling users to target specific areas of a workpiece and achieve precise curing results. Equipped with state-of-the-art software control, this UV curing unit allows for customizable curing parameters, making it ideal for use in a wide range of applications. The Helix® ONE is also equipped with a high-powered 8W UV lamp, providing fast and reliable curing performance.
POWDER COATED DRINKWARE
The Helix® ONE’s LV Series is perfected suited to print on powdered coated drinkware.
STAINLESS STEEL TUMBLERS
The Helix® ONE offers great adhesion and abrasion resistance to stainless steel tumblers, wine tumblers, and more!
Print full CMYKW + V on a variety of plastic cups including acrylic.
INDUSTRIAL BASE AND STORAGE CABINET
The optional industrial base and storage cabinet was specifically developed for the Helix® ONE benchtop cylindrical printer. Featuring a solid base with storage, this cabinet carries the full weight of the machine and offers ink and supplies storage underneath.
MIST EXTRACTION SYSTEM
The optional mist extraction system for the Helix® ONE helps to prevent build up of ink and other debris. The mist extraction unit consists of a fan and filter system that draws in the air and captures the ink mist and other particles before they can escape into the environment. This helps to maintain a cleaner work environment by reducing the amount of airborne ink particles that can settle on surfaces.
